Getting Back to Figure Photography…


I’ve been slacking lately and after a little bit of peer pressure from some friends of mine on the mythical interwebs, I’ve decided it’s time to get back to doing some figure photography. So I decided to set up some basic shots last night for my Gothic Garden Tsukasa figure… It’s been a while since …
